Ebay Treasures

I love Ebay! I think I've stated that before, but it's true. I can lose hours looking at unique items on that site. I've even made a few friends on Ebay, people I check in with frequently to watch their listings, or in the case of Michelle Toland, someone I've worked with to create one of a kind Portie sculptures.

A couple weeks ago Michelle contacted me and told me about some pieces that had become available. She had sold them originally to a woman who collected sculptures of many breeds. When she died recently, a relative was selling off her collection on Ebay. The seller wasn't a dog person and didn't recognize the various breeds and listed them all as Scotties. Apparently Scotties were the only dog she was familiar with, and obviously not all that familiar.

I checked out the site and there were several Airedales with bids on them, a couple Scotties with bids on them, but there were no bids on the two pieces I wanted most. So I bid a ridiculously low price and they arrived today.

This one of two Kerry Blue Terriers on a table is in perfect condition.
And here is my big prize, two Porties playing on a bench. This is also a picture frame piece and will fit in great with the rest of my collection.
I love Ebay!

Both cute buys, Sue! I used to shop for yarn because they always had lots of 100% wool, but I sort of question some of it today.

How is Ms Samba today?

I'm on the same page as Sam and Pippen....the more EBay Ma does, the less Mad Money for Moi!
Gotta watch that woman!
